I wanted to cry
at that moment.
I was always told,
to never cry at all,
though many forgot at an early age.
That doesn’t matter to me.
Greasers don’t cry
but not being able to cry is-
as if feeling has no name
as if emotion was white and gray
and sadness wasn’t bold but cold.
As if happiness was straight and tired; to never be felt again.
Losing a friend
by having him slip stealthily and steadily away
through your fingers not being able to grab him,
is possibly the worst feeling
ever felt.
How much I want to cry
though other people are staring
at the hero.
What hero lies-
what Greaser cries-
What kind of friend would I be if I didn’t
What would happen if-
I never cried again.
What would happen
if I did.
What would happen, if the
wishing, weary
hero
died.

Be yourself.
Not what other people want you to be.
Don't try to be someone else,for only the benefit of others
